  • Katie Holmes says Tom Cruise's children with Nicole Kidman call her 'Mom'

    Katie Holmes says Tom Cruise’s children from his previous marriage call her ‘Mom’.

    Just a few weeks after Nicole admitted to GMTV that Isabella and Connor – the two children she adopted while married to Tom – had taken to calling her simply Nicole, his new wife has revealed she’s the one they refer to as their mother.

    ‘My kids don’t call me mommy, they don’t even call me mom,’ revealed Kidman. ‘They call me Nicole, which I hate and tell them off for it.’

    Meanwhile, Katie tells Parade magazine this week that the pair ‘call me “Mom”‘ and are ‘incredible, really smart and kind’.

    Little Suri hasn’t been forgotten though, with Katie gushing about their upcoming festivities.

    ‘Last year was Suri’s first Christmas. It was so spectacular to share the holidays with her,’ she adds. ‘It really meant the world to me. To be able to create a tradition for your children is one of the best gifts you can have.’
